Benztropine (Cogentin)

Benztropine is a prescription medication used to treat the symptoms of  Parkinson’s disease and Parkinson-like symptoms caused by other medical problems or medications.

It belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics, which work by blocking a certain natural substance (acetylcholine) in the brain. This action helps to decrease muscle stiffness, sweating, and the production of saliva, and helps improve walking ability in people with Parkinson’s disease.

In the context of Parkinson’s disease, benztropine is used to address symptoms such as tremors, stiffness, and slow movements. These symptoms are caused by a deficiency of another neurotransmitter in the brain, dopamine. While benztropine doesn’t treat this dopamine deficiency, it helps balance the activity of other neurotransmitters to reduce these symptoms.

Benztropine is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease, but it can help manage the symptoms and improve quality of life.

For patients experiencing side effects from antipsychotic drugs (like haloperidol or chlorpromazine), benztropine helps manage symptoms such as muscle stiffness or spasms, and restlessness. Antipsychotic medications can disrupt the balance of neurotransmitters in the brain, leading to these side effects, and benztropine works to restore this balance.

Benztropine is available in both oral tablets and injections. While oral tablets are the more common form. Benztropine tablets are taken by mouth usually once a day at bedtime. Depending on your symptoms and response to treatment, the frequency and dosage may be adjusted by your doctor. It can be taken up to four times a day.

The exact starting dosage and frequency of benztropine will vary depending on the individual and their specific symptoms. It is usually started off at a low dose and gradually increased as needed. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions and not adjust the dosage or frequency on your own.

In the United States, benztropine is available under the following brand names:

  • Cogentin

Common side effects associated with benztropine may include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Blurred vision
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite

More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:

  • Difficulty or pain when urinating
  • Extreme dry mouth
  • Uncontrolled muscle movements
  • Muscle weakness
  • Vision problems such as blurred vision, tunnel vision, or seeing halos around lights
  • Confusion, delusions, or hallucinations
  • Skin rash
  • Fever
  • Fast, irregular, or pounding heartbeat

The above lists of possible side effects associated with benztropine are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking benztropine, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.
